City seeks input on transportation
The public is invited to a family-friendly open house event on plans to update the Madras Transportation System Plan on Thursday, Jan. 18, from 4-7 p.m., in the Community Meeting Room at Central Oregon Community College in Madras.
The event is the third in a series of community open houses on the project since 2016. If you live, work, go to school, travel in or through Madras, or own a business or property in the area, then the city and Public and Technical Advisory Committee want to hear from you as they work to finalize the update to the Madras Transportation System Plan.
Over the past two years, in cooperation with a Public and Technical Advisory Committee and the community at large, the city has been working on updating the TSP. The goal of this third and final open house is to share with the community a draft final plan and seek community input. The city and the Public and Technical Advisory Committee are eager to hear from community members, as the plan will help determine how people move in, around, and through Madras.
There will be no formal presentation, so drop in anytime between 4-7 p.m. at the Jan. 18 event. Talk directly with city staff and share your experience of getting around and through Madras and provide feedback on the draft final plan.
Bring the whole family, as snacks and a kids table for drawing will be available. English and Spanish language interpretation and materials will be available.
Additional information about the project can be found on the web at www.madrastsp.com.
